The rhythmic ‘push' and ‘pull' nature of our hotel planning is driven by the musical aspect of the hotel. On the facade this effect is further enhanced by the addition of a bay window that becomes an ‘inspiration' space, a floating extension of the hotel room, allowing the artist to focus on practice or writing of new material. The coloured glass of these bays draws inspiration from the ‘northern lights', a phenomenon of nature that can be observed across the Latvian skies. It is envisaged that from a distance the hotel itself will take on the appearance of such a natural marvel. Externally the building is clad with ‘ship lap timber', similar to Jurmala's timber homes.
